Amazon finally launched a teaser for their original series entitled The Terminal List. This teaser gives us an idea of the appearance Chris Pratt as a formidable Navy SEAL named James Reece. The role marked Pratt’s return to television for the first time since his iconic appearance as Andy Dwyer in Parks and Recreation. The eight episodes of the original high-octane series will be released on July 1, 2022.
This teaser itself is presented quite briefly and densely with various action scenes. The character played by Chris Pratt is seen in action with an assault rifle. He gets caught up in some pretty serious situations, from an overturned car to a wrecked vehicle and goes on secret missions and engages in close-quarters combat.
Based on Jack Carr’s bestselling novel of the same name, The Terminal List follows Navy SEAL commander Reece and the events after a failed secret mission. Reece and his team are ambushed during the mission, forcing them to fight their way out despite the dangers. At first, Reece was overjoyed to have survived death and to see his family again, but as time went on, the events of that day continued to haunt him. He began to doubt his leadership and his own guilt for what had happened. The web of lies and conspiracies that led to the deaths of his teammates sends him on a new mission to find the truth and stop those who are endangering him and his loved ones.
Joined Pratt in The Terminal List are Constance Wu, Taylor Kitsch, Riley Keough, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Arlo Mertz, Jai Courtney, JD Pardo, Patrick Schwarzenegger, LaMonica Garrett, Stephen Bishop, Sean Gunn, Tyner Rushing, Jared Shaw, Christina Vidal, Nick Chinlund, Matthew Rauch, Warren Kole, and Alexis Louder. Director The Magnificent Seven, Antoine Fuqua will direct Pratt once again in the series based on a script written by David DiGilio. This seems to be one of the most serious action roles ever.
Pratt will also serve as executive producer on the series, joining Fuqua and Jon Schumacher of Indivisible Films and the novel’s author, Jack Carr. Amazon Studios and Civic Center Media produced the series for Prime Video.
